The Departed

The Departed

.

This is one seriously spectacular movie – the cast alone is outstanding – 50% of the movies budget went to the actors salaries, Which does make sense when you see the line-up. Its got everything in it and is critically acclaimed – seriously impressive script, actors, direction – piece of art this is!

The Departed

We’ve got Jack Nicholson as the ferocious Frank Costello (based on the notorious Whitey Bulger 1929 an Irish–American gangster from Boston) who really is one classy bastard.

Leo plays our undercover cop “Billy Costigan” who gets deeply integrated in Franks mob.

Whilst Matt Damon’s character “Sullivan” was practically raised by Frank in a pseudo manipulative fashion & plays both sides – became a cop and worked his way up but is Franks mole in the FBI.

we’ve got the glorious Mark Wahlberg – who just fucking makes the movie for me – every line out of him makes me laugh

I’ts a phenomenal comedy, drama and action – one of Leo’s best works in my opinion – such intensity in the movie but its one you can watch several times because it never gets any less brilliant. And the amount of cursing is something else – Along with the Boston cop humour, The Departed actually holds the title for the most amount of F words EVER used in a Best Picture Oscar winner

Interestingly – Brad Pitt is one of the movies producers – he was initially going to play one of the two lead roles (DiCaprio & Damon) but felt he was too old & decided to produce it. So we’ve got one hell of a movie – if your looking for laughs, wit and incredible work this is the one for you, We’ve got some terms of endearment..

And some damn diabolical weighted one-liners that make it easy to see why Nicholson got an Oscar nomination for his role

The Departed

.

To sum up – this is an incredible movie people
